How VERY dare you!

Another beautiful day here in Trelawnyd. I have spent the day strimming and planting, stopping only to sell eggs to a few visitors. I was just boxing up half a dozen for ex trelawnyd man Peter, when a group of amblers walked past. Peter started to big up just how nice my eggs were and had a small crowd of them listening to his spiel when one old lady with the obligatory ski sticks and knapsack piped up loudly
" there are two goats over there chasing a pig!"
" I haven't got a pig" I told her shortly but turned around anyway to see what she was looking at
I snapped this bad photo after I went to investigate

Winifred being pursued by Irene & Sylvia

  7. Hahaha - reminds me of a quizz in German TV long time ago, where a woman should draw a geeze. She painted it a) broiled and b) with 4 legs.

  8. Time for new glasses.
    I like pigs, and so did Winston Churchill, so Winnie could take it as a compliment, but I'm not sure that the sheep would like being called goats ;)

  13. The scrufulous old heifer must be blind in one eye and can't see out of the other.

    How ironic is that, coming from a smutty cow? x

    2. I wear my new title with pride. However, you did break my Great Scot...when I shared it, the tears went rolling down my darlings (??) cheeks and sobs of laughter came from beneath the pillows.. Harrumph! ;-)

    1. I must admit at over 26 kilos she does look a little piggish from afar

    2. One of her kind came snuffling into the pub tonight and scared the shit out of a young, Molsem-looking fellow. Sans Balls - the dog, not the fellow, as far as I could tell.

  17. Now that, John, is funny !! …. and, by the looks of it, Winnie isn't put out at all. She looks well in control and a brilliant leader. Perhaps she has lost her calling as a sheepdog !! XXXX

    1. That was meant to be MISSED her calling !!! Oh God …. I'm getting old !! XXXX

    2. To be fair... They WERE chasing her

    3. Oh, let's give her the benefit of the doubt …. when you look at her face, she really looks as if she knows what she's doing. XXXX

  18. If you sprayed Winifred pink she would indeed look like a little porker. How come the old woman had ski sticks? It wasn't snowing today.

    1. It's a uniform they all wear
      Waterproofs, knapsacks, long socks and two ski sticks

  19. LOL! Poor Winnie! I HATE it when someone asks me if Sophie (my dog) has gained weight!!! IT"S HER FUR I tell them.....
    "They'? And the proper name for 'ski sticks' is Nordic Poles sir, as we each have a set here. Remember there are a lot of folks older than you Johnny me laddy.....lol

  20. are the sheep Soay?

    Another reason grockles should stay where there are pavements everywhere. LMAO Seriously what version of Babe did she watch? (Babe is a tamworth, with that lovely ginger quiff)

    1. They are indeed Soay girls

  21. I can perhaps overlook that the woman thought Irene and Sylvia were goats as at first glance from a distance, a Soay may resemble one since they are not especially large sheep, and the horns may appear goatlike, again to the uninitiated. But Winnie looking like a pig? If she were pink, then i might give the woman a free pass.

    A new set of spectacles may help, although people often see what they want to see and call it good.

  25. I've never found using a metaphor to describe people's pets have pleasing results. My neighbor never appreciated me calling her small dog a winsome little slut.

  26. Oh Winifred is not what we call "A pig dog" ........Australian for a ugly woman .... she is sweet and pretty!

    That woman needs to get her eyes checked! LOL

  27. I truly did laugh out loud when I read this!

  28. Ah but, while you turned your back on the old duffer, she nicked half a dozen eggs!
    Poor Winnie, she does have some scrapes, I laughed until I farted!
    The look on the cats' face was a picture, so I laughed until I..........

  29. I know everyone is focused on the poorly sighted "ambler" (such a quaint term) and the insult to Winifred but im loving the actual photo. You really do have it going on in your small part of the world. Such a lovely scene to wake to each day. Im living vicariously through you as i sit here in an office with windows that dont open year after year moving paper from one side of the desk to the other. Heaven must be in Trelawnyd (which i still cant pronounce). My Yorkshire hubby (in Aust for 30 yrs) tells me i need to use the front of my mouth to be able to say it properly. Anything would be better than listening to him lose half his vowels and consonants (its painful, really). Even more amazing, you dont whinge!!! LOL No insult to the English in general, just one 50+ Yorkshireman (and seemingly his entire family). That Monty Python sketch seems annoying real to me. No wonder i want to Escape To The Country.

  33. Obviously a pure townie .... or 'Mr Magoo' short sighted.

    Fancy calling Winnie a pig ... although they are both gorgeous in their own way. I have had some beautiful looking pigs :-)
